If you follow me on Instagram (if you don't, why ever not?), then you'll know that Hubs and I took a little day trip up to Kansas City this past Sunday. The main reason for the outing was to get the front facing camera on my iPhone fixed, but we also got to walk around the cutest part of the city ever. We were able to eat at one of my favorite restaurants for lunch and then we stopped in at Barnes and Noble, a.k.a. A Bookworm's Mecca. I had no intentions on purchasing anything that day, but we all know how well that works out.
I ended up adding a new Cecilia Ahern novel to my collection, One Hundred Names. I have developed a deep admiration for Ms. Ahern's writing ever since I read P.S. I Love You, and this book did not disappoint. I finished it in two days. TWO. I could not put it down.
The story centers around a fallen journalist, Kitty, as she tries to right herself again. Her mentor, who is stolen from the world by cancer, left Kitty with a list of names as her final story, the story she always wanted to write, but never did. Under a strict deadline and enormous pressure from her editor, Kitty has to figure out what the connection is between the people on the list without any further clues. Along the way Kitty makes lovely new friends and finally remembers why she started writing in the first place.
I fell in love with the individual personalities and the bond that is formed between them. There are moments that will bring you to tears. Happy tears, of course. There is something for everyone: a little mystery, a little romance, a little supernatural, and a lot of love. Highly recommend this book. Now I'm off to find the next great story.
